1 in 68 children are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder in the United States
Autism is a Neurodevelopmental Disorder that affects a child's overall functioning. Children with Autism have difficulty with communication, forming relationships with others and understanding abstract concepts.
We offer a variety of services for children on the Autism Spectrum
Behavior reduction plan
Problem behaviors most often occur at home. Parents are left stressed and unsure of how to handle the occurrence of these behaviors at home.
We offer in-home observations of your child's problem behavior by our lead Behavior Analyst. After conducting a functional assessment, a Behavior Reduction Plan will be designed to target the reduction of your child's problem behavior.
We will conduct consultation meetings to ensure the correct implementation of the Behavior Reduction Plan and will offer you data to track your child's progress.
Verbal Behavior Plan
Children with Autism are most often affected by communication difficulties.
A Verbal Behavior Plan is an evidence-based intervention that teaches children with Autism how to use language functionally.
Utilizing reinforcement, shaping and prompting procedures we develop your child's language acquisition.
Our data-driven approach ensures you can track your child's progress every step of the way.
BEHAVIOR LED ACADEMIC TUTORING
Suffering from neurodevelopmental or learning disorders can have a negative impact on your child's academic achievement.
Using behavior analytic principles such as reinforcement and shaping we are able to break difficult academic tasks into manageable pieces to help your child achieve success.
Learning, for your child, should be fun! We work to increase your child's level of motivation to maximize his or her potential.
Managing challenging behavior can be extremely difficult and stressful for most parents.
We provide personalized assistance for parents living with a child on the Autism Spectrum.
You will learn the skills necessary to manage your child's behavior in a way that is conducive to their wellbeing, behavioral and emotional development.
